Restoring Your Smile’s Strength and Integrity
You can largely prevent most dental health issues with routine family dental care. However, there may still be times when you have to actively address a problem with one or more of your teeth in order to preserve your good oral health. For example, if a cavity develops in your tooth, or if the tooth becomes fractured or broken, then restoring the tooth will be necessary for it to regain its full function. Restoring the tooth also stops the damage from growing worse, which could lead to the need for tooth extraction and an appropriate replacement. To facilitate these treatments, we work an in-house prosthodontist, Dr. Ambriz.
If you’d like to learn more about the many ways in which we can restore a troublesome tooth, click on one of the pages below:
- Tooth Fillings – Most people will experience a cavity at least once in their lives, but with a custom tooth-colored filling, treating one doesn’t have to be troublesome. A tooth-colored filling offers the dual benefits of blending in discreetly with your healthy, natural teeth, while also providing a more effective and biocompatible solution than other filling materials.
- Root Canal Treatment – If your tooth starts to hurt severely, or if you had an old metal filling that failed, then you may need more involved treatment to address your tooth decay. Root canal treatment is a gentle, customized procedure that involves carefully removing the infection from within your tooth, offering relief from your intense toothache as well as the restoration of your tooth.
- Dental Crowns – Dental crowns are among the most commonly recommended restorative dental treatments. A crown covers, or caps, the top portion of your tooth, restoring and fortifying it so it can once again function properly. Every crown is custom-designed to closely mimic the healthy, natural appearance of the tooth that it restores for optimal cosmetic and restorative results.
- Bridges & Dentures – Whether you’ve lost one, several, or all of your teeth, a customized dental bridge or denture can fully restore your smile with an appropriate number of lifelike replacements. The ability to replace your lost teeth means your custom bridge or denture can restore your smile’s appearance as well as your bite’s optimal function.
- Dental Implants – When you want the most lifelike support for your custom dental prosthesis, dental implants can provide the best solution. By replacing your lost teeth roots, implants offer unmatched support for a prosthetic crown, bridge, or denture, without the need for additional apparatus such as hidden clasps, abutment teeth, or dental adhesives.
